Graham Kendrick // Singing the Story

7 Jun 2010
I’m back home having recently completed a 16 date tour of the UK – nothing very unusual for an itinerant worship leader, except that I didn’t use any ‘praise and worship’ songs. I should explain that for the first time in a very long time I had taken to the road to do what I used to do before praise and worship as we know it really existed, namely performing songs many of which told stories from the Gospels...Read more
